There are several ways, but you could select the chain of interest, invert selection, and then hide selection.  For example, menu:

Select… Chain… B
Select… Invert (selected models)
Actions… Ribbons… hide
Actions… Atoms/Bonds… hide

-OR- commands:

~ribbon ~ :.B
~display ~ :.B

I recommend trying one or more of the “getting started” tutorial(s) for becoming familiar with Chimera.

I hope this helps,
